of congress or the president or anybody else to really have a big plan that actually fixes the problem? >> no, because right now the president doesn't have a big downside but in a month and a half from now he has a huge downside and that comes due with the debt ceiling. and frankly, you know, when you say they have no one about this for a year and a half, they have known about it for ten years because it was always meant to be. this was going to explode and people were going to negotiate something before it explodes. but i think it's highly overrated. it's going to happen. and lots of good things can happen if it does explode. i think people should stop worrying about that. i think they should start worrying about making a great deal. not a small deal but a big deal, an overall deal that's going to get the credit rating of this country back and do lots of other good things. >> donald, always nice to talk to you. >> thanks a lot, greta. >> coming up, you will love this. celebrities gone wild from hollywood kidnappings to splits and even a bromance. who takes the biggest prize for the 2012 bigg
